Factoids and Extraneous Opinions
I'm interested in Evolution.
I've been a netizen for about 25 years.
Yes, the net is much older than what many people believe!
I do community service, mainly tutoring in math and guest-lecturing in CS, and I am the Community Outreach co-Coordinator where I work.
I don't care about politics, but I do think that the world works better when people help each other out.
I used to spend a lot of time debating evolution and creationism.
I used to spend a lot of time debating atheism.
I was raised a baptist.
Evolution is very good science - on par with the theory of gravity.
Neither Intelligent Design, nor any other form of creationism, is science.
The Family Man
Wife and two daughters.
Unfortunately, my father-in-law died recently so our family is a little smaller and a little poorer now.
The family I was born into:
I have 3 brothers, a mother, and father.

, people reject evolution. Really only two reasons: 1) they have a comic-book understanding of what science is and how it works, and 2) what they "know" about evolution amounts to barbershop gossip. Evolution is a central unifying fact and theory of biological science. It explains the VAST preponderance of evidence. It violates no known laws of science. When people say otherwise they spreading what amounts to urban legend. I suspect, in fact, there is a very high correlation between people who reject evolution or accept creation and those who forward urband legends and other spam emails. I intend to create a list of essays on subjects such as the techniques used by creationists and "intelligent design" advocates, the evidence for evolution, refutations of creationist arguments, links to pertinent sites on the web, and book reviews. Specifically I'll be critiquing arguments on second law of thermodynamics (2lot), radiocarbon dating, specified complexity, among others. I'll also be critiquing ideas presented by William Dembski, Jonathan Wells, Michael Behe, and others.
William Dembski is famous for misrepresenting Wolpert and McCready's NFL (No Free Lunch) theorems as disproving evolution. Michael Behe has introduced the idea of specified complexity - things in nature that could not possibly have evolved without a designer. Jonathan Wells wrote the book, "Icons of Evolution" in which he rehashes the same copiously refuted arguments over which which creationists have already embarrassed themselves.
